Tribeca Spotlight: Lola Versus

Film: Lola Versus


TFF Synopsis: Indie ingénue Greta Gerwig stars as Lola, a New Yorker on the verge of 30 who finds herself abruptly dumped mere weeks before her long-anticipated wedding. Single for the first time in eight years, Lola attempts to rebuild with the help of her friends, sweet and supportive Henry (Hamish Linklater) and no-nonsense chatterbox Alice (co-screenwriter Zoe Lister-Jones), only to find that suddenly navigating the unfriendly waters of dating and relationships makes letting go and moving on much more easily said than done. 

I found out about this film through a fan of Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman who has made a mini US debut in the AMC original drama The Killing (and he was a past Spotlight of the Day.) The trailer looks cute. In my world "cute" can go  2 ways-- really good or horribly bad. I have found that I tend to enjoy this kind Eat, Pray, Love, woman finding herself with the help of quirky friends and accompanied by an indie soundtrack. I will def. try to catch this.

  1. Quite enjoyed that trailer! Love it when they say 'from the studio that brought you...' like we really care what studio is bringing us the movie!
